Gennady Stolyarov II
Step back in time to the early Enlightenment Salons of the U.S. Transhumanist Party, originally hosted in person by Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II. This stream combines the majority of the first three Enlightenment Salons, discussing subjects such as prosthetics, brain-computer interfaces, life extension, transhumanist advocacy, artificial intelligence, health, fitness, and more.
First Enlightenment Salon – September 17, 2017
Gennady Stolyarov II, Bobby Ridge, Scott Jurgens
U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II spoke with Bobby Ridge and Scott Jurgens regarding their areas of interest in research and study. Topics addressed include emerging advances in prosthetics, orthotics, 3D printing, 3D scanning, the science behind neuroplasticity, brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), artificial intelligence, and the societal implications of these technologies – including the extent to which they, combined with a universal basic income, may facilitate increased self-actualization by more people.
Second Enlightenment Salon – November 11, 2017
Gennady Stolyarov II, Bill Andrews, Bobby Ridge, Scott Jurgens
U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II invited Dr. Bill Andrews (the U.S. Transhumanist Party’s Biotechnology Advisor), Bobby Ridge, and Scott Jurgens to his Second Enlightenment Salon, where they shared their thoughts on emerging life-extension research, advances in prosthetics and orthotics, philosophy of science, brain-computer interfaces, and how technologies from a variety of fields are converging to bring about a paradigm shift in the human condition – hopefully within the coming decades.
Third Enlightenment Salon – May 27, 2018
Gennady Stolyarov II, Bill Andrews, Bobby Ridge, Mihoko Sekido
The Third Enlightenment Salon featured excellent conversations on the rise in public awareness of transhumanism and life extension and what can be done to further increase support for life-extending medical research. Dr. Bill Andrews, Bobby Ridge, and Mihoko Sekido shared insights on medical science, promotion of health, and methods of communicating the forthcoming convergence of advances in a wide array of technological fields. Importantly, they addressed how anyone can get involved in the transhumanist movement and improve public acceptance of the emerging technological future.
